Everyone knows what they are capable of. We'll see what they do with their funk metal sound later.

Incubus ****ing rock, but there's no way they're getting in.

Incubus are very good, lyrically extremely imaginative and musically are very talented- definietly deserve to be in there.

If they made more songs like "Dig" they'd probably be my favorite band. But as it is, I don't really know what to make of them. Overall, they're just too average, I'm afraid.

boring as hell. no.

as a huge fan, i of course think they should get in. i can see some arguements, particularly regarding their last album "Light Grenades", which i thougth was their weakest album, and most unoriginal lyrics. Songs like "oil and water" and "dig" and "love hurts", where just typical and cheesey. the guitar playing went south on that album too, i think b/c Einzeger had carpel tunnel in his hand resulting in a sub par album. but, they are taking some time off, Einziger is going to Harvard for a degree in composition, so we'll see how their career progresses. Maybe not in right away, but eventually should be. Science, Make Yourself, Morning View and Crow were all too good of albums to ignore. Plus, amidst all the rap/rock, limp biscit (sp?) bull sh*t, they actually progressed and used a turntable to hightlight and enhance their music, not over power it.

Anyone who makes statements as stupid as, "boring as hell. no.", and "they're too average" has NO IDEA who Incubus is as a band, and HAS NOT listened to all of their albums. Or seen their live shows. PERIOD!

Incubus is one of the most creative/funky/imaginative/lyrically inept bands I've ever had the pleasure of listening to! This band is definitely underrated nowadays...they deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame...give them about ten years, it should happen.

I am not quite sure what you are saying here. You first state that they are creative and imaginitive, but then you say in the same sentence that they are lyrically inept. Seems like a contradiction to me.

Drive is the one of the best of the 2000's. Keeping rock alive in this rap dominated age. New album is great (go buy it!). Four number ones on the modern rock chart already. And four more on the way. If they keep it up they will be ultimate locks.

Not that this has anything to do with whether or not they're Hall worthy, but, they're gay, right?

I still have yet to hear from a band that was influenced by Incubus.

According to billboard, Incubus is the most commercially successful band of the 21st century. 1 album went #5, 3 albums went #2, 1 went #1. 16 top 20 singles on the Alt chart, 4 of which went #1. Drive went #9 on the US TOP 200. Hall of fame.

i would personally love to see incubus get in, they are one of the most unique bands ive ever seen, incubus in every album to date they have a different sound, and thats diversity.

Posted by wheresware on Sunday, 05.26.13 @ 21:07pm

Incubus has been my number one band for ten years

Incubus is so underrated. If Madonna can be in the rock & roll hall of fame, Incubus sure as hell can. Incubus is such a talented and creative band.

Posted by CC on Monday, 06.13.16 @ 21:16pm

I'm not even a Madonna fan, but really? I can only hope that was satire.
